globalwaste

Totally, completely, absolutely IN LOVE with @zerowastehome's book. I can't put it down, I'm only 2 chapters in and already feel like a blind fold has been removed from my eyes. When we throw things away, where do they actually go? Our rubbish doesnt just magically disappear. It goes into the Earth. And it will stay there for a very, very long time. Recycling is the last part of the puzzle for sustainable living. Refusing, reducing and reusing comes first... and I'm committed to doing my part to help reduce my waste, both in my home and in my business. A hundred different ideas are buzzing through my head on how I can make The Raw Food Girl workshops 100% zero waste. By September 1st, I promise that we will be! #zerowaste #sustainability #globalwaste #green #reduce #reuse #recycle #rot #compost #nowaste #plasticfree #carbonfootprint #plantbasedwholefoods #packagefree #rawfoodgirl #waste #banthebag #crueltyfree #wholefoods #raw

Do you know how much waste generates the average person pro year? Up to 5000kg for countries like Germany, England, France, Belgium, Croatia, up to 10000kg for Romania, Austria, Serbia, up to 20 000kg for Finland, Sweden and Estonia, but number one is Bulgaria with the incredible amount of 25 000kg pro person! We don’t realize what we leave after our self.🌍⛟ Our mind is busy with thinking for what to spend my next paycheck that is materialized and I can touch. Buying always new is a way to fill an inside miss we have. There is much to speak about but we could share a way of fight against one of the top #waste sectors - #fashion! 😲 👗🛍Recreating your own wardrobe instead of throwing it away seems hard and time-consuming job, but in fact can be easy and fun weekend event. Here are some photos from our #workshop with Jasmine Febrraro and Plan A. Girls time, #daddygirl time, time for finding #newfriends or time to get alone with your thoughts, everybody found what they need, but we all had fun and created alone new cool staff. Using Jasmine eyelet-hammer technic and inspiration advice you can’t go wrong! What do you think about the result? :) ⚒💁‍♀️👚🙊 @userjasmine @planaearth #emptyyourwardrobe #workshop #upcycle #reuse #reduse #fashionindustry #globalwaste #globalwarming #climatchange #plana #designerview #newshirt #saturdaymood #chill #cocktails #music #weekendvibes

Grocery store tossed out 7 cases of these pepperoni sticks. Let's crunch some numbers: I picked up 5 cases, each case containing 144 pepperoni sticks weighed 18 pounds each! That's 5 cases x 18 lbs. = 80 lbs. or 720 pepperoni sticks thrown out with expiration date in 2019!!!🌎✌😱😱😱🙏🤝🌏🌎🌍🌏🌎🌍🌭 Dumpsters and landfills never go hungry...people do! #zerowaste #dumpsterdiver #nowaste #globalwaste #foodwaste #reduce #reuse @hawaiifoodbank @globalwaste @dumpsterdivingduo

De lever på skräp: Idag uppmärksammar vi sopplockare runtom i världen. På bild: 1. MaKene Ngoroma i Tanzania: "Det finns allt fler initiativ både här och globalt med att gå mot zero waste. Nyligen förbjöd regeringen i Tanzania användningen av plastpåsar. Rapporten om att vi kommer ha mer plast än fisk i våra hav tror jag öppnade upp ögonen för många." 2. Monde Xinwa från Grahamstown i Sydafrika. Monde flyttar mellan Grahamstown och Port Elizabeth, då han inte bor någonstans permanent. Han önskar att han och hans bästa vän Fistos kan ta sig ur sin situation. "Vårt jobb har en positiv inverkan på både miljö och människor. Men vi hindras ofta från att ha ett bättre liv", säger han till OmVärlden. 3. Som flykting i Libanon försöker Waleed Mustafa försörja sin familj genom att samla sopor på sopbergen, han packar återvinning han har samlat på taket till en bil han fått låna. Sopplockare står för en stor del av den återvinning som ändå sker i Libanon. Foto: @natheer.jpg 4. Khaled Mahmoud (till höger) köper plast som bröderna Mohammed och Mustafa plockar bland det färska skräpet högst upp på sopberget i Libanons näst största stad Tripoli. Männen utgör Tripolis hela sopsorteringsindustri. De säljer vad de samlat direkt till ägaren av lastbilen, Khaled Mahmoud, som sitter i en plaststol intill.

~ I've found a little angel! Throughout the ages, objects have played so many different roles within human civilization. It is interesting to realize how focused we tend to be on the material world in modern society, reducing life to matter only, while at the same time we seem completely oblivious to 'matter' itself looking at the amount of global waste scattered across oceans and landfills. This points towards a clear split between our mind and how present and connected we actually are with life. On the one hand, the western paradigm generally believes that matter is all there exists. On the other hand we tend to live so much in our mind, that we are not actually in touch, in tactile connection with and present with our physical environment, including the earth itself. Likewise some spiritual teachings for a long time have denied the importance of the physical realm and matter - thereby again creating a split between spirit and the world of the senses. However precisely by giving our care, presence and intention to material objects and the physical world, we naturally mature spiritually as well. By giving our awareness, we actually imbue matter with light - thereby potentially creating a powerful talisman within and without.~ #splendoursoflove #environmentalissues #globalwaste #paradigmshift #beingintouch #mattermatters #talisman #angelpresence #mexicanweave

GOING GREEN. For yourself, or for the planet. It doesn't matter. The fact is that it's better for everybody. We have all been taught as kids to switch the lights off when we leave the room and to turn off the tap while brushing teeth. We've been taught not to waste our food. Adult life has taught us to wash our clothes in cold water as it prolongs the life of the clothes while also saving the energy. BUT being eco-friendly is not just about that. Using up the natural resources is one part of the problem. Another, huge part of the problem is global pollution and global waste. ❎Pollution is a result of burning fossil fuels for energy, animal farming, transportation and the use of various chemicals in everyday life from agriculture to personal care, as well as all the waste that we produce. ❎Pollution kills over 100 million people and over 100 million animals each year. ❎About 5000 people die every day because of the lack of clean water. ❎Approx. 14 billion pounds of waste is dumped into the oceans. ❎In LA alone 10 tonnes of plastic is washed into the Pacific Ocean. ❎Over 70 different kinds of pesticides can be found in ground waters, which end up in our drinking water. ❎Rain washes the bacteria from livestock waste into water streams. ❎Livestock is fed the grains treated with pesticides and fish consume the pieces of plastic found in water. All of these end up on our plates. ❎Americans buy over 29 million plastic bottles per year and only 13% gets recycled. ❎Plastic takes up to 1000 years to disintegrate, all the while contaminating the environment with chemicals. ❎1 trillion plastic bags are used around the world each year, which can't be recycled. ❎E-waste from electronic devices and appliances and also batteries, pollutes the environment with heavy metals such as lead and mercury. ❎In 2007 Ireland produced 780 kg of waste per person, followed by the USA with 760 kg of waste per person and the UK with 570 kg. 👉SO what does this toxic waste do to us, humans? 😷Asthma, infections, cancer, DNA mutations, infertility, hormone imbalances, birth defects, poisoning and death. 🏥Is this the LIFE we want?

Morning Post From▶️ @antea.tey Follow▶️ @its_trivandrum • • • What do you do to cut down on plastic waste?! For those who watched my instagram stories, you will know that behind this beautiful photo and a view is a huge pile of the plastic waste! That’s why I am using this opportunity to try to wake up waste awareness in many of us! I know I am also not a perfect Earth friendly person. When you step inside my bathroom, there are like 50 plastic bottles of different products that I hardly use! But I am recycling, I clean beach after myself, I bring my own shopping bag ( you know in Dubai shops they put every product in separate plastic bag!!! That makes me really mad!) I am trying everyday to cut on my unnecessary waste! After my trip to India, I realized that so many people are not aware of what they are doing to our nature, animals confuse plastic waste for their food, what kills them in pain! And let me tell you, the fish you have for a dinner, also contains plastic that YOU consume later on!!! So that’s why I am asking everyone who reads this post, to make a little change in their life! At least start separating water bottles! Let’s save our planet for our future generations!!! #planetearth #plasticwaste #recycle #waste #earth #nature #globalwarming #savethenature #savetheocean #india #trivandrum #world #globe #globalwaste #beach #wakeup #model #ootd #travel #globetrotter #letsrecycle

Global waste diner || Tonight I attended the global waste diner and it was delicious 😍😍 everything was used of the leftovers of companies, supermarkets and retailers ❤💚 It's so inspiring to see what you good can do with "waste". While enjoying the delicious food, I listened to social entrepreneurs who shared their amazing story with us. And to end the night I talked with some very inspiring people, to conclude: an amazing night!!💚✅🎉 * * * * * * #globalwaste #globalwastediner #nowaste #food #wastefood #leftovers #inspiring #delicious #yummie #food #diner #foodgoals #sustainable #sustainableliving #sustainability #sustainable #bymaxime #ecoliving #ecoloving #ecofriendly #thereisnotsuchathingaswaste
